Here is the scarf I finished yesterday. This one only took me 12 hours to complete because I used thicker yarn. Oh and this is the yarn I bought some months ago at a yarn shop. It is Merino wool which made it cost baaatloads of money. $70. I'm happy with my final product, but I am also fully aware I could have bought 4 wool scarves (already completed) with the same money.
And of course I have to do the requisite modeling of the scarf in the bathroom mirror.
I noticed that they sold skeins of yarn at the giant dollar store downtown. I'm fairly certain they are all spun with 100% non-wool products. But since the next thing I'm going to make will go on my feet, I'm going to need some durable, synthetic fiber. Like acrylic. This is just the kind of thing they have at the dollar store.
Anybody have a good (which for mean means EASY) bootie pattern for knitting? I need to make spouse and I some matching ones.
